WESCO International, Inc., a publicly traded F500 multinational electrical distribution and services company, has retained us to recruit a Senior Counsel & Assistant Corporate Secretary for its headquarters located in Pittsburgh, PA. Candidates must have 7+ years of sophisticated corporate/securities experience, including in-depth knowledge of securities laws and regulations (’33 & ’34 Act).

This newly created position at a company that has recently doubled in size (post-merger with Anixter International) provides advice and counsel to management and other stakeholders regarding complex legal matters, with a focus on securities, corporate governance and corporate secretarial matters. Reporting to an Associate General Counsel, this position also interacts closely with the General Counsel, senior leadership team, Board of Directors and Board Committees.

The ability to prioritize and juggle multiple projects is essential, as is the willingness to roll up your sleeves and do the work.
